Day #26 (I skipped a day again…)
“Write about your worst habit.”
I had to think for a few minutes about what my worst habit is, but I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s my paranoia. I don’t think I have any extreme paranoia that will evolve into something horrible, I have a pretty good handle on it, but the paranoia is still there. Paranoia that I’m being cheated on, not that I’ve had too many boyfriends… paranoia that people are saying negative things about me behind my back, or making jokes at my expense.
I also have a huge fear of spiders. Every night before I go to bed I do a huge search on my room making sure that there aren’t any spiders. Generally the search is enough and I’m able to lay in bed comfortably without needing to get back up, but every now and then my paranoia will get the better of me and I’ll feel like there are spiders on my ceiling, which will cause me to get out of bed, turn on the light, and check the room again. There are even rarer nights when I’ll repeat that action several times for half an hour until I’m finally satisfied that there are, in fact, no spiders in my room.
